Description:Here is a grooving latin version of One Mint Julep from the Xavier Cugat band which features your Piano / Keyboard player on rock organ. The arrangement is fairly straighforward, with no great surprises, and we have only marked it at the medium / advancel level because the Trumpet range is high in the lead (up to high Eb). The original organ solo is written out, but your player can is free to improvise if preferred. The feel is even beat latin, but works equally well as a rock / funk feel. If you are playing at a function where people find it hard to dance to swing charts, this one will get them all on the floor.
